Description


Imagine living in a world without pain.

This series takes readers (Ages 8-12) on a historical journey, examining how people coped in the past and how they developed ingenious ways to make life safer and less unpleasant. Each book features full-color cartoon-style illustrations and hilarious speech bubbles to heighten interest, making the series attractive even to reluctant readers.You wouldn't get headaches or stomach aches, and it wouldn't hurt when you cut yourself or touched something hot. A pain-free world may sound wonderful, but if pain did not exist, our lives would be very dangerous. We probably wouldn't survive for long. We would certainly be less healthy. And, just perhaps, we'd feel less good about ourselves. Learn about the science behind how our bodies are able to experience pain, the ways pain helps us to stay safe, and the ghastly reality of life before modern painkillers.
